Pet of the Week - Milo

Meet Milo, a handsome German Shepherd/Mallinois mix looking for a forever home. He arrived at the shelter in mid-December of last year as part of a humane investigation case. At just over a year old, Milo has already spent over half of his life at the shelter! It's time we help him get on with his life outside of the shelter!

True to his breed, Milo is very high energy and will need an experienced, breed-savvy handler. He does best when he is worked, otherwise he is a bit indifferent, which seems to stem from under socialization as a puppy. He loves tennis balls and will drop them willingly for you to throw them again. He's also a water-loving pup and likes hanging out in the kiddie pool with his ball.

Since Milo has been at the shelter for half of his life, his kennel is now his home. He shows barrier reactivity toward dogs passing his kennel but out of it, he is just fine! Due to his size and puppy-like behavior, children are not recommended and we do not know how he does with cats. He'll need someone patient who can help him build a bond and who understands how to bring out the best in him without applying too much pressure. His ideal owner is someone active who can physically stimulate him just as much as they can mentally stimulate him.

If you are interested in adopting Milo, PLEASE know his breed and what it requires. Please note that because he is a case dog, all applications for Milo will be reviewed and approved by our Humane Officers. Stop by the shelter any time during business hours Monday - Saturday from 10 am - 5 pm to visit with him! We are located at 402 Bryant St in Ojai. Included with every dog adoption will be the first DHPP shot of the series (if age allows), a rabies vaccine (if age allows), a wellness check good for up to three days from participating veterinarians, implanting an identification microchip with registration, spay or neuter surgery, if necessary, as well as a collar, ID tag, and a leash.
